Tribesmen demand Qabailistan province

PESHAWAR, (SANA): Dozens of tribesmen took to streets in Peshawar calling for a separate province for the people of tribal areas of Pakistan.

The protest demonstration was organized by Muttahida Qabail Party (United Tribal Party) which demands that a separate province comprising seven tribal agencies and frontier regions be created “for an end to sense of deprivation in people of tribal agencies.”

“Why not a separate province for us, if South Punjab and Bahawalpur provinces are being made? It is our right,” the protesting tribesmen said, chanting “we want Qabailistan”, carrying placards and banners in their hands.

The tribal party claims to have gained the support of PML-N and the MQM for the cause of a new province.
